Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane. He soon realized She was heading straight towards his seat. As fate would have it, she took the seat right beside his. Eager to strike up a conversation he blurted out, “Business trip or pleasure?”

She turned, smiled and said, “Business. I’m going to the Annual Nymphomaniacs of America Convention in Boston."

He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen Sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs!

Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, “What’s your Business at this convention?”

“Lecturer,” she responded. “I use information that I have learned from my Personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality.”

“Really?” he said. “And what kind of myths are there?”

“Well,” she explained, “one popular myth is that African-American men are The most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait. Another popular myth is That Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Mexican Descent who are the best. I have also discovered that the lover with Absolutely the best stamina is the Southern Redneck.”

Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed.. “I’m Sorry,” she said, “I shouldn't really be discussing all of this with you. I don’t even know your name.”

“Tonto,” the man said, “Tonto Gonzales, but my friends call me Bubba".

From my Twitter feed. I follow Tim Noakes, the South African exercise physiologist and advocate of HFLC who fought the South African Health Professions Council after a dietician complained he'd told a nursing mother to wean her baby to "real foods"---took four years, but he won.
Noakes co-wrote the 2017 book Lore of Nutrition with journalist Marika Sboros.[19] In it Noakes describes his Damascene conversion to low-carbohydrate dieting, explores how the lipid hypothesis is the "biggest mistake in modern medicine" and details his struggles with the medical establishment.[19]

Manuel Transmission

Well, hearing the sad news about our pal, Herb, was the final cap on a perfectly dreadful day. 6/24/2019 just sucked like a fistful of Friday the 13ths. Started out with a wake up call from our colleague/customer in Pueblo where my spidey sense decided to put off our flight down there for a day. Turns out that was the best thing that happened all day. Next, the power went out for no obvious reason. After giving it about 40 min. before firing up the genny, just because it is a pain to get everything up and running, I discovered the network feed is also down. Overall, blew an hour or more stacking the BBs to the point we could get back to final tweaking or the customer widget and one of our own that I’m taking today. Every step of that process produces small flashbang grenades of disaster including the custom battery pack dying on the customer machine. That costs an hour and a half, because the new version is completely different in size and shape. About this time, my sidekick gets a panic call from his older daughter, who just graduated from Gonzaga (and hasn’t found a job yet), to tell papa the she found the front door to their house wide open and the indoor only cat gone. Fortunately I can wrap up our stuff on my own while he heads off to help hunt for the cat. Finally, as we start shutting down for the evening, Mrs MT looks out her kitchen window at the freshly loaded bird feeder and sees a coon trying to figure out how to dismantle it.

The only consolation prize was the wayward cat returned to my sidekick’s house about 6 hrs later.

RIP, Herb. You picked a perfectly awful day to return to your maker.
